Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Three titles examine the human body. A 1960s palette and attitude informs From Head to Toe: An Amazing Human Body and How It Works by Barbara Seuling, illus. by Edward Miller. The volume covers bones, muscles, the brain and organs, among other parts, with text that invites a personal connection ("You might think your belly button has no purpose.... It doesn't anymore, but once it was your lifeline") and rainbow colors show internal organs. Humorous sidebars supplement each section; the accompanying experiments (e.g., making a hinge joint out of boxes and tape) are easy to execute.
School Library Journal
Gr 3-4-The workings of the human body are explained, not from head to toe as the title claims, but through a cumulative voyage through various systems (excluding reproduction). Beginning with the skeleton and progressing through the joints; the muscles; the brain and nervous system; the organs; and skin, hair, and nails, the text gives a clear, age-appropriate sense of how the body accomplishes its daily functions. The illustrations, although cartoonlike and simplified, work well as maps, color-coded and keyed to information so that children are able to navigate the physical body through the text and art. Most systems have an experiment attached-testing taste buds, creating a robotic hand, making a hinge joint or a muscle, seeing a lung work-that can be undertaken in classrooms or alone, with minimum adult supervision. Explanations are clear, straightforward, and breezily conversational; many sections include trivia bullets as interest points. Although without some of the extravagant graphics of some titles in this genre-no flaps, pop-ups, or plastic overlays-this is a welcome addition in a field that, while crowded, is also of never-ending interest.-Dona Ratterree, New York City Public Schools Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
The illustrator of many "Let’s Read And Find Out" science titles supplies characteristically flat, simplified, lighthearted (so to speak) diagrams for Seuling’s (Robert and the Weird and Wacky Facts, p. 426, etc.) tour of the body’s major components. Aiming at young children who are just beginning to wonder what’s inside, she introduces bones, muscles, organs, and senses in digestible, largely self-contained bursts of information—labeling the trachea, pancreas, occipitofrontalis muscle, and other selected items for readers who relish mouth-filling scientific terms. Though glancing barely, if at all, at the endocrine system, disease, physical development, or sex, she does close with a look at the body’s repair mechanisms that leads to a discussion of the past and future of artificial body parts. Enhanced by directions for several simple models or demonstrations, some experiments, plus more of the same on the illustrator’s Web site, this once-over conveys a clear sense of the body’s complexity without losing sight of the big picture.
